Not everyone gets to be a top Hollywood star, but plenty of people get to appear in films and TV shows. Often just fairly ordinary people who are looking to make a bit of extra money on the side working as extras. It's an exciting way to earn some extra cash. The pay rates are good and it's great to be immortalised on the silver screen as peasant number three, or  a serving wench or a startled bystander. Whatever background characters are required basically.


So how to get involved? Some people have contacts within the industry, which is great for them. They just to have to sit and wait for the phone ring. What about everyone else? New people who want to get involved as extras. Well without contacts and know how it can be tough, but that doesn't mean it's impossible.


And it just got easier to break into to this type of work thanks to a new text alert service from Audition Now. This handy service gives anyone wanting to break into working as an extra a heads up of where casting calls are taking place. Not only are these gigs a great way for ordinary people to make some extra cash, but also for actors looking to get started on their career path. OK so the roles aren't that demanding, but it's a great way to make contacts which can lead to bigger and better things.


Anyone wanting to use the service must be 18 years old or over. Each text alert costs £1.50 and up to three will be sent each week. It's a great way to get started on a fun aside from regular work or as a leg up for serious actors looking for that big break. Get details of the casting call, go along and then anything could happen. That's the exciting thing about show business.
